jingpreraindragonwellJING lists this as their highest grade Dragon Well. It consists of long, light green leaves and is apparently picked on the first of April. The leaves offer minimal aroma.

The flavor is broad and the texture is warm and round. Each element is instantly identifiable. The bold, broad taste is lively, bright, and complex all at the same time. Only a small hint of bitter finds way into the mix. It tastes both yellow and green, rolling about smoothly and leaving speckles of the delightful taste after it disappears.

With a texture that is ideal for a green tea and an aftermath that is soothing, this is something special. The key for this experience is to find the ideal tea:water ratio. I found that the result was strongest using 2 1/2 tsp for 8 ounces of water, which significantly impoved my opinion of this blend versus some alternative ratios previously attempted.

This green really thrives on its balance of flavor, texture, and emotion. They blend together so well here that it's difficult to properly describe. The flavor ranges from nutty to earthy with small spikes of spice. The texture is consistent, easing the flavors along their paths, and the sensation after a single cup is that of tranquility. This is a wonderful tea.

    Thanks for the review Brad, I’m glad you like the tea. It’s not listed on our site as a Dragon Well though, it’s a different tea. Could you correct this in your review?

    Hi David –

    This was our fault, in the editing process we attached the wrong title to this tea – it was intended to be “Pre Rain Organic Dragon Well Supreme”. Fixed now, with my apologies.

    Thanks Stephen, could you put the right picture as well, the current picture is Anji Bai Cha.



  4. Stephen Says:

    Should be fixed now!
